GSSG/COG Celebration and Benefit was a big success. We had many first-time donors and even new monthly sponsors. The volunteers, who made the event possible, hope you enjoyed the authentic Guatemalan food donated by El Chapin Restaurante, the entertainment by singer/songwriter, Sandra Camila, the mariachi music of Estrella del Nuevo Amanecer, the photo booth, the bucket raffle and silent auction. We are very grateful to Jorge Achilla, consul general, and Cristina Espana, viceconsul at the Guatemalan consulate in Raleigh NC for attending. Ms. Espana surprised the attendees and sang an original song, accompanied by her two cute little girls, about her love for Guatemala. GSSG is also grateful to Mary Dudas of the Fallon Center for her invaluable assistance, and to Get Lit, Special Event Lighting for the mood lighting. Thank YOU for being part of this wonderful occasion.
